TRUE NORTH

Elsebound

2014-06-06

Contemporary bluegrass band True North is made up of two married couples. They take it light, reasonably slow, and mellow. Think happy, but not giddy. No fast picking here. There's a nice balance between male and female voices, sometimes solo, sometimes in unison, sometimes in harmony. Great when you want to slow things down, go acoustic, recover from ear-bleeding dynamics, or otherwise need a palate cleanser. From the band's website: "Hailing from Oregon's Willamette Valley, Americana quartet True North combines traditional bluegrass instrumentation with fat harmonies and folk-edged songwriting for a decidedly modern acoustic sound."  --Gerald Etkind
